So it is a pleasure to share a few titles of interest
For the fantasy lovers:
Graeme Ing's Ocean of Dust
Lissa, a fourteen-year-old-girl, is snatched from everything she knows, enslaved on a ship that traverses the intriguing ocean of dust.
My thoughts: I loved it! It was such an adventure read. Page after page I wanted more. Graeme Ing delivered with fantastic world building and drew me in with his characterizations.
For the sci-fi lovers:
M Pax's The Backworlds
Follow Craze on a journey from family betrayal to building his own life in the Backworlds.
My thoughts: I heart Craze! He's such an easy character to cheer for, especially given the way things go for him. His journey is much like any new adult starting on their own, except his is forced in a not so wonderful way.
Cherie Reich's Gravity trilogy
Three short stories of how love pulls, like gravity, and is even harder to resist (sci-fi and romance smashed well together)
My thoughts: Each story proved how love is universal. I adored reading each story to see how things would turn out...truly, would love conquer all? Only reading the stories will you find out :-)
For contemporary lovers:
Derinda Love's Today Only
Living life daily can be hard when tragedy is ever present, waiting to strike. But living and loving for Today Only can make life worthwhile.
My thoughts: Have some Kleenex handy. I shed tears of pain, joy, and just because while reading this story. Some things just aren't fair, but love, in this beautiful story, proves stronger than sorrow or self-pity.
These are just a few of the stories I've been cramming into my tight-rope-of-a-schedule. Each one well worth the time spent. And I've got more to get to. So excited about that, too. After all, I am an author, but reading started it all for me.
What are some titles you've finished in the last month or so? Please feel free to share in the comments.
